Unconfirmed reports that Tariq Aziz and other 3 others among Saddam regime members may be released soon! This is none-sense and ridiculous. How you may release them before a trial.
On the other hand the officials in the Interim government mentioned that they counter-attacked terrorists in some areas and arrested some. Among the arrested is the leader of Insar Sunnah in Kurkuk.
Dr Ahmed Chalabi raised the issue of 500 million dollars sent by Hazeem Al-Shalan the Defence Minister and Iyad Alawi to Beirut. This may have been used for election propaganda.
From their side Iyad Alawi party accused the Iraqi Coalition of having the support of Ali Sistani.
We think that AS is an Iraqi citizen and he got the right to give his voice to whoever he like to and so there is nothing wrong if he supports one party.
We think it is not right to use the state money or its media by the government for its benefits whether in election or any thing else. The government should also answer the question about the allegations regarding the 500 millions dollars.
